Senator Lindsey Graham announced he will be stepping down from his role as Senate Judiciary Chairman in 2020. He plans to return the gavel to former Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley

Senator Graham made the announcement in the Senate on Thursday while waiting for United States Attorney General Bill Barr to testify before his committee.

Senator Graham then confirmed his decision to step down early during a series of interviews.

In a Thursday interview with Politico, Graham stated, “Love Chuck Grassley. That’s the way the Senate works. He took the Finance Committee so I could be chairman, and he’ll come back and fill out his time, and I’ll come back, and somebody else will come along.”

When asked about the possibility of handing the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee back to Chuck Grassley by the Hill, Graham responded, “He has, I think, two more years (in that role). I’d honor any request that he wants to make.”

Senate Republicans can only chair a committee for six years maximum while they are in office. This is to prevent any single politician from gaining too much power.

However, the first thing Republicans need to worry about now is winning the 2020 election. If they were to lose the Senate in 2020, there would be no Chair for Lindsey Graham to give up.

Senator Graham has become one of President Trump’s most steadfast allies in Washington D.C. since he won office in 2020. However, Trump has been critical of Lindsey Graham’s time as Judiciary Chairman. He believes Graham should have used the position to investigate more corruption by the Democrats.

It is unclear whether or not President Trump’s criticisms have anything to do with Senator Graham’s decision to step down.
